Running soloby Rachel / Nov. 30, 2020
Running has always been a huge social thing for me. Parkrun on a Saturday morning with that all important coffee after, a long Sunday run with friends and that chatty 5k after work. That was until 2020 happened. With no households mixing allowed for most of the year solo running has had to become the new normal for a lot of people.
With New Shoes, Everything is Rightby Rachel / Nov. 12, 2020
2020 has been a very strange year. With most races and events cancelled it may seem like there is little to focus on running-wise. Without a goal it can become tough to keep that running-mojo. However, there’s always one thing that's always guaranteed to give my training a boost and that’s a shiny new pair of running shoes.
Workout with Running Friends Digitallyby Rachel / Apr. 01, 2020
Heading to parkrun on a Saturday morning was one of the highlights of my week - especially the post-run brunch/coffee! It was a guaranteed catch up with friends with a 5k run thrown in for good measure. Running for me has always been a huge social thing. With the current COVID-19 global pandemic happening - social sports have been cancelled. For the time being, we are all riding solo.
Fitting Marathon Training with Workby Rachel / Feb. 18, 2020
February - the shortest month on the calendar, even if it is a day longer than usual this year! Training for those spring marathons is well underway and race day is getting closer. Most marathon plans consist of around 16 weeks training, where you'll typically run three to five times a week. It can all seem a little overwhelming and a question I'm often asked is ‘How do you manage to fit it all in?’
Award for Best Running Shoe Goes toby Rachel / Nov. 08, 2019
When it comes to running shoes (and life, if I'm honest) I'm a girl who likes a bit of stability. I think I've finally found 'the one' with the Gel-Kayano - they currently tick all the boxes for me. A coupIe of weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive the new GT-2000 8 so I was excited to see how they compared.
